I’ve dedicated a good portion of my life to telling love stories. Couples come to me, I get to know them, and I document their engagement and/or wedding day through photos and words on this here blog. But I’ve never taken the time to share my own love story. The reason I do what I do, why love is so important to me and the impact it’s had on my life… My actual heart and soul.
It’s been a heck of a long time since I shared anything personal here. Maybe I’ve been too busy to take the time to share anything about me… but truthfully I’ve known what I
want need to say and I’ve been to afraid to say it. I wrote the words below to give as a talk at a women’s event this spring… but, I wasn’t able to deliver then, so i’m sharing now!
You know, social media can really make being an entrepreneur look like unicorns and rainbows when most of the time it’s actually ramen noodles, day old yoga pants, credit card debt, and a messy house while you sit in front of a computer screen for hours.
Today I’m sharing some notes about life along with images of three of my FAVES! Spencer, Belen & Hendrix are wild and fun, we had such a blast at the Little Sahara Sand Dunes last month. This is the perfect time to post this because the amazing Belen just graduated with her degree in nursing! As someone who totally struggled in school (and never finished), I completely admire Belen doing the work to graduate! I know it took many sleepless nights and lots of hard work Belen, Great work! Congratulations… You da BOMB!
“The Moment that you feel that
you’re walking down the street naked
exposing too much of your heart
and your mind
and what exists on the inside
showing too much of yourself
that’s the moment
you may be starting to get it right”
I hope I’m getting this right.
Today I’m blogging images from the Romero’s mountaintop session and talking a little about life and how it can be surprising and sweet and not always whats expected all at the same time. Be sure to scroll through the images at the bottom, you wont want to miss this knockout-karate-chop-combo of stunning setting and happy family that is the Romero’s.
You know, I’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about what I want my life to look like.
A note about focusing on your strengths.
Last fall I had a really horrible-unhappy customer. They yelled and threatened and argued and demanded free products for nothing. They left me my first poor review & loads of anxiety. I couldn’t believe it. I’d gone above and beyond for them, I’d given them free upgrades, and their images were some of my best work. I felt betrayed and confused…
I lovedlovedloved getting to hang out with my siblings, their spouses, and the furry kids over Memorial day weekend. There isn’t much better than smoreo’s (smore’s made with oreo’s..drool) and laughing around the campfire.
We met in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and went on the hunt for a campsite. After finding that most of the National Park roads were still closed for the winter season we ended up setting up camp at Steamboat Lake State park. The tent sites are on an island, and provide spectacular views of the sunset and sunrise over this gorgeous lake.
